There have been many accolades uttered about Elvis' talent and performances through the years, all of which I agree with wholeheartedly. I shall miss him dearly as a friend. He was a warm, considerate and generous man.— Frank Sinatra
Surprising Accolade quotations
The more I help out, the more successful I become.
But I measure success in what it has done for the people around me. That is the real accolade.
I've never been an individual guy. I never cared about the accolades. I've always been driven by the competition and the learning process.
If you think and achieve as a team, the individual accolades will take care of themselves. Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.
On the field accolades are great, but in order to reach your full potential, you have to overstep the boundaries of football and go out into the community and be an All-Pro there too.
We are each the authors of our own lives, Emma.
We live in what we have created. There is no way to shift the blame and no one else to accept the accolades.
The accolades usually come when you're dead or too old to get a job
Life isn’t about the final destination or the accomplishments and accolades;
it’s about the journey and the opportunities for learning—and how we grow as a result.
Follow your passion. Nothing - not wealth, success, accolades or fame - is worth spending a lifetime doing things you don't enjoy.
The accolades, just like the scrapes and bruises, fade in the end, and all you're left with is your ambition.
When someone pursues music through your music, that's the greatest accolade anybody can get.
Frank Sinatra was very devoted to what it was he did.
At the end of his life, what he had left - there have been accolades, mementos, festivals, superlatives, all that stuff. He's done movies, TV, done this, done that - what he had left was a love of his audience, and that kept him alive.
It was getting the results that made science worth doing;
the accolades were a thin, secondary pleasure.
I am not too serious about anything. I believe you have to enjoy yourself to get the most out of your ability. I can take the criticism with the accolades. Neither affects me.
I just recently joined Twitter. It's very positive - I love all the accolades. If my ego is hurting, I can just open my Twitter account and see 'Oh, I love you! I love the show!' and it's great. I'm trying to find the balance between trying to be funny, being honest and just being a promoter as the guy on 'Royal Pains.'
Having these colossal accolades and titles, they get in the way.
Any of the rewards or accolades or any of that are very nice and everything but the music is what saves me. And it did. I would write my way out of any kind of depressing period.
It was quite a ride and very conflicting for me, too - to be nominated for an Oscar, to be straight and healthy, and to be getting all these accolades while these people around me were suffering and dying from AIDS.
The accolade of your peers is very exciting, always. There's lots of good stuff on the ballot.
All the Hollywood bullshit and accolades and money really doesn't matter.
It just gives you a slightly nicer house and slightly nicer food and slightly shinier hair.
I just work - however people feel about it, I mean, at the end of the day, if I'm waiting for accolades, I could be waiting all my life, but I don't need that stuff to validate me. I just do what makes me happy.
Ian Ashby is very underrated and it's right he gets the accolades he gets
What's important is not the accolades and memories of success but the way you respond when opportunities are denied.
I never tried to crossover or be in the public's eye everyday.
I'm laid back with it and at times I wondered if I was doing the right thing promoting myself staying back a little bit and coming out when I felt that I had too. But when I get all the accolades and hear the things people say it just puts it all together for me man. It's a blessing.
Having other comedians complimenting my work is the biggest accolade that I can get.
Accolades and lists may tell us about accomplishments, but life is meant to be experienced, not just accomplished. It's like the difference between reading books for the sake of reading and reading books just to get a good grade.
He’s totally different from the typical jock.
He has no ego. That’s unique for someone with such accolades. His strength comes from a higher power. You can’t explain Steve Largent by computer – he doesn’t belong on an NFL field. You put his size and speed in an IBM computer up in Silicon Valley, it would chew up his data card and laugh.
If I were to go the major route, again, attention would probably be the first and foremost. You want attention, you want support, you want to be treated properly, and I don't wanna have to go anywhere and teach people how to treat me. As far as money, acclaim and fame, those things are a plus - accolades - they're all great.
I have the best of both worlds. I have all the accolades that come with something like that video, but I don't have people stopping me on the street and being like, "Oh, my God, dance for me." I have probably only been recognized three or four times flat out - someone saying, "Are you the Evolution of Dance guy?"
The thing is, if you're going to take the artistic path, you sort of have to make peace with the idea or the possibility that you may never make any money or get any acknowledgment or accolades for what you're doing.

I did my job and I'm proud of what I did and how I did it.
Any accolades that anybody puts toward this band really makes me feel good, because I have devoted such a big part of my life to this band, making it what I want it to be.
I feel that single mommies don't get enough praise and accolades.
I've had first-hand experience. My mother was a single mom. As far as I'm concerned, mommies, in general, rule the world. And single mothers just take it to a whole other level.
I went to South Africa - Durban, Cape Town, Johannesburg - and those were definitely the "I've arrived" shows. Outside of the money, the success, the accolades ... This is a place that we, in urban communities, never dream of. We never dream of Africa. Like, "Damn, this is the motherland." You feel it as soon as you touch down. That moment changed my whole perspective on how to convey my art.
The way the music industry is now geared, it's fewer accolades towards new and upcoming acts. New bands offer bright creativity. It's a set format. A venue would rather hire a DJ than a band, and that's a problem.
